Here’s some stuff I’ve been doing in my studio…



The original is modelled in Sketchup and ‘Printed’ on a Dimension 1200 Rapid Prototyping machine in ABS plastic. I take a mould of that and cast it in porcelain. There’s a mould for the teapot body, a mould for the lid, and one for the spout. The handle is made by hand. I have about 8 different moulds that make bottles, tumblers, and bowls. 

Here’s the plaster mould pieces for the teapot body.Image

More soon!

    Very cool, I love the horizontal texture on the teapot. What kind of glazes are you working with for these?
    Also, could you check to make sure I’m an author on the blog? I can’t figure out how to make an original post, not sure if I have permissions or not…

  2. Thanks Ryan, I’m glad you like them. They will all be wood-fired with celadon glaze. I’ll pst a finished example soon.
    I resent the invite to your myumanitoba address. I bet your existing profile isn’t listed as an author here.

    will be interesting to see how the wood ash reacts to those corners!
